Brandon Davies, yes, the guy who got suspended for having sex with his girlfriend, has all been forgotten on the NCAA map in the post Jimmer era of BYU, but the dude is tearing it up this season and he is a guy I would most definately take with an early 2nd round pick.
He dropped 26 points and 17 rebounds on Baylor, last night, and has been a big producer all year long. He's dropping 20 ppg 8 rpg is shooting 43% from 3 to go along with almost 2 blocks and 2 steals per game. I thought he was a legit pro prospect 2 years ago playing next to Fredette as the only other guy on the team who was more than an average D1 player.
BYU is an average team, and I doubt they'll get much press throughout the rest of the year, but Davies is a well balanced do it all forward and if he really ends up being 6'9'' then I could see his stock raising up after the combine. If he's a bit shorter than advertised, I still think he's a great guy to pick up in the early to mid 2nd round.
Joe, do you think he's definitely a 4 in the pros? I think I remember him being put as a combo forward a couple years ago when he was in the mocks.
Kind of a combo, he reminds me of Marcus Morris.
He should make an nba team next year or the year after. Some guys take a year overseas or in the NBDL to be able to play in the NBA. Like Udonis Haslem or lance thomas. He is definitely an NBA player, it is just a matter of when, it depends on who drafts him or who he signs with.
Finished the Portsmouth strong leading his team to victory and taking home MVP honors. Averaged 20.7 ppg on over 60% shooting, 9.3 rpg 3 apg and measured 6'8.5'' with a 7'2'' wingspan and a 9' standing reach. The Portsmouth doesn't really have a ton of weight in the whole predraft process, but Davies certainly made the most of the opportunity.
